Just been too busy to update this rep for rep, but thanks for the good comments guys. My workouts are going well, switching to a much faster pace now but still keeping the weights up, did some deads Wednesday at the end of an 1 hour and 30 minute marathon weight lifting session in which I did way more than normal (just happy to not be sick)- I usually am more around an hour - and was able to get 440 for a few pretty easy so I was happy with that considering I am down to about 169 now and I was worn out. I will make my wife take some more pics soon and post a few up, maybe I will get a pump for them this time, we'll see. Finally fully over the flu and the following cold and my mouth is pretty well healed from having my wisdom teeth taken out - full speed ahead to May 5th. The girl that was supposed to do the show with me, she was going to do the figure show and maybe the couples bodybuilding with me (almost a free trophy as nobody ever does it), is probably going to back out, oh well, I have a freind doing a figure show a week later in Des Moines, IA with a chance to win her WNBF pro card - so I can diet long distance with her. That's all, later guys and gals, train hard and eat smart.
